    Unless you can find a spitfire/GT6 gear stick from an early 3 rail box!! the later single rail gear lever is different.
    You could try using some shrink wrap over the existing cables they also wear on the entry hole into the stick as well.
    Is this, on eBay, the correct stick Ben?

    Sorry missed that first time round yes thats for a three rail box needs the ball changing.
    You need the knob that takes the switch and there should be a threaded collar that holds the knob on.


    The collar C30623 actually goes inside the knob not as shown in drawing.

    Thanks Ben, I've bought the stick, and Rimmers have the collar and associated bits.

    Finally! an update. Managed to get the Spitfire overdrive gearstick in place and re-bushed today. That means I have the wiring going through the hollow stick now, not squashed into the know and shorting out.

    Bonus is that the clearance to the fuel line is now several inches, and the Spitfire stick is angled back more so shorty me will find it easier.

    Had to drift out the reducer in the gear stick knob and open up with a round file to get it over the larger OD stick thread. Just need a 'sling' walled lick nut now, or continue to file down an old seat belt nut.

    Re-connected the overdrive wiring and wired in the twin USB socked where the overdrive switch used to be.

    Cover back on.

    Don't you love auto correct;

    "a 'sling' walled lick nut "

    Was supposed to be;

    "slim walled lock nut"

    LOL

    David the lock nut is like a threaded collarC30623 that sits inside the gear knob not where the
    drawing here shows it.
    Also secure the cable to the gear lever below the exit hole to stop it chaffing.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    Thanks Ben, I have ordered that lock nut assuming it was sown in the wrong place on the diagram!

    Good idea to secure the cable, I'll do that, thanks.
